Powerful debut with a simple and surprising story about a repressed love triangle. A young woman allows herself to be seduced by the guard at the prison where her husband is held. The guard turns out to be an old hand.

Explosive and upsetting family drama. Eleven-year-old Tommi has to cope with the marriage of his modern yet disappointed parents breaking up. Powerful performances and an emotional balancing act in the convincing directorial debut by the well-known Italian actor Kim Rossi Stuart.
Idiosyncratic and rather uneasy film by a great talent. A film like a dream. A work of art that is occasionally difficult to get hold of, with a tangible heart.
